Ugandan Gorilla Trek with East African Playgrounds

Take your journey by foot and hand-crafted dug-out canoe across the amazing landscapes of the Ugandan highlands tackling mountains, extinct volcanoes, forests and lakes with breath-taking views along the way, including the famous River Nile. Trek through Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and come face to face with the last remaining wild silverback mountain gorillas in the world. Then, see where your fundraising is going by living and volunteering in a school for a week, transforming an empty playing field into a vibrant, exciting and creative playground for all to enjoy.

Play is one of the most important building blocks for a child's growth. Without the freedom to play children struggle to make friends, to learn, to reach their physically capabilities, to enjoy life and so much more. By building safe, fun and high quality playgrounds across Uganda, EAP is able to promote and reinforces the importance of every children having their childhood. All our playgrounds are tailor-made to the community, they are built using local materials by our highly professional local build team. Just one playground will impact hundreds of children over it's 10 year life-span. Do you want to be part of making this impact?

Climb Mount Kilimanjaro with Hope for Children

Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the most impressive sights in Africa and climbing it is one of the all-time great achievements, with only 1% of the world’s population taking on the challenge. Rising majestically from the savannah of Tanzania, Kilimanjaro soars to a chilling 5,895m, climbing high above the cloud line. It is the highest mountain in Africa and the largest free-standing mountain in the world. Climb your way skywards through all types of terrain as you walk through the clouds on your trek to the roof of Africa. Watch the sunrise over the vast African plains as you finally reach the summit you’ve been working tirelessly towards before trekking back down to enjoy the more relaxing side of Tanzania and Zanzibar. 

Hope for Children enable vulnerable children to experience a positive childhood by improving their access to education and healthcare whilst empowering their families to support themselves. Be a part of this change!

There are more than 350 different conditions of the brain and spine and together they affect more than 12 million people in the UK. These conditions affect both children and adults and in many cases have long term impacts without the prospect of a cure. Neurological conditions and associated treatments are often complex and poorly understood by those affected and their families. The Brain & Spine Foundation provides support and quality information to people affected by brain and spine problems, in order to reduce anxiety and help inform their choices. We have a helpline which is a free service staffed by neuroscience nurses, who can answer questions about all neurological conditions, from the fairly common to the very rare, and can offer information and support on any medical or related social and emotional issues of concern. Help spread the word and make a difference to thousands of people who experience the daily struggle of living with brain and spine problems.

Meningitis is a killer disease. It can attack anyone, of any age, at any time. Sadly, it is overwhelmingly children under 5 years, university students and the elderly who are most at risk. Every year there are more than 7,500 cases of bacterial and viral meningitis in the UK. The consequences can be devastating and immediate: 1 in 10 people contracting bacterial meningitis die – sometimes within a few hours. Of those that survive, 1 in 3 are left suffering dramatic, life-altering after-effects. Meningitis Now is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to saving lives and re-building the future of those affected by the disease. Our vision is a future where no-one in the UK loses their life to meningitis, and everyone affected gets the support they need to rebuild their lives. We are focussing on 4 key areas to achieve this: Life-saving medical research, raising awareness through innovative campaigns, rebuilding futures through financial support grants, and speaking out to fight for those affected by meningitis! Be a part of the community fighting Meningitis!
